Well I went out to the Street Legal drags last weekend. A few things...
First, why didn't I do this earlier? What a freekin blast I had! Met some new guys and made 4 passes.
Traction was an issue. The only guys that could get a good launch was guys running cars with full drag slicks. Even the drag radials guys were spinning pretty good.
Best time I got was 14.0 at 100mph. Just couldn't get off the line without allot of peddling. Did what I thought I was going to do, but after looking at my datalogs, it seemed like I was leaving at 3000 rather than 2000rpm. Hard to watch the tach and the light at the same time.
Best 60' was 2.1 I tried hard to make it into the 13's, but couldn't do it this time.
Weather was warm at about 95 degrees and the humidity was very low, probably around 10%. My poor blower was crying for some cool air.
One of the things I wanted to do was drive right up to the line without any changes to my car. That is how I ran. Didn't even let any air out of my tires or anything. Next time out, I will do some adjusting of air pressure, and launch rpm's, and probably change my shifting points some. I didn't do any sort of burnout either, not even dry. Most guys that were running street tires didn't do a burnout.
The track didn't seem very sticky. One guy that I talked to said it felt reasonably sticky to him. He was in a 12.5 second (all motor) car with slicks. He had N2O, but didn't use it. I think it was because of the track conditions. He said he runs 10.5's normally with a 175 shot.
I did learn some things, especially watching some of the other guys run. I'll go back in a month or two and hit it again.
Thanks again for all the help guys. I"ll let you know when I go back and if there is any improvement.
